Ghosts of Derby

Wayne Anthony and Richard Felix

Derby the ‘Ghost Capital of England’? It is an intriguing thought. Now two local men, one a specialist in matters supernatural, the other a local historian with a particular interest in the subject, have joined forces to produce Ghosts of Derby, a guide to the city’s spookiest sites, where ghostly presences are felt and where, sometimes, things actually do go ‘bump in the night’.

Here we read about ghosts from the nation’s history who found their way to Derby - Bonnie Prince Charlie and Mary, Queen of Scots for instance - tormented souls, holy ghosts, surgical spirits (Derby has its share of haunted hospitals), commercial ghosts (they haunt our shops and offices) and haunted inns. There is also a glossary to help the reader know more about what kind of ghosts they might expect to encounter on a trip around Derby’s haunted buildings.
The result is a fascinating account of a city which, by all accounts, has more ghostly occurances than even somewhere like York.

It will appeal to anyone interested in the history of Derby and, of course, to anyone who belives in ghosts.
